Read Poem: THE FIRST GOODBYE, by Axel Frühmann 

I seize the day with you, my child
I’d like to stay with you for a while
But there’s work to be done
And I’ll be gone today

I’d find the words if they flew on by
I’d catch and throw them to you, I’d try
Yeah, you know that I would,
but now… it’s time

Grace,
I can’t wait for better days
I was always built for the chase
I’m the one who lives on trains

Grace,
I can’t sit and wait for peace
You’ll be fine at the home, you’ll see
Eat their toast and drink their tea

I seize the day with you, my girl
We seemed to flow with our balloons
Holding hands in the haunted house
Oh, today went by too soon

Shush now, when the morrow comes
You’ll find times in yesterday
All these memories and plays
Oh, not a waste among them

Grace…
I can’t wait for better days
I was always built for the chase
I’m the one who lives on trains
Grace,
I can’t sit and wait for peace
You’ll be fine at the home, you’ll see
Eat their toast and drink their tea

We were meant to be together
Meant to stay this way forever
But the train will say goodbye.
Now, the tracks may lead wherever
And I’ll see you… maybe never
Know my heart’s yours as yours-is
Mine.
